Video Tutorial: Sunset Eyes with Spring Colour Forecast

Video Tutorial: Sunset Eyes with Spring Colour Forecast

For the next few days, I’m experimenting with a new format/way of doing video tutorials that still gives you some live-action footage but doesn’t add much time to my normal routine. (Sometimes I tell myself, “If I didn’t have school, that would free up like 48 hours of my week!”)

What I’m trying to do is record myself doing my makeup that I’d normally do and then just take still photos of and post on the blog–so these looks are not practiced or planned. It’s me going with the flow. I’d like to call these “Quick & Dirty” Tutorials, if you will, because that’s exactly what they are… quick, minimalist, and maybe even a little unpolished.

I’m hoping that there is still value in them–so I would love to hear your feedback.  As much as I would love to do more full-on, ultra detailed video tutorials, my schedule is such that I just can’t keep up, so I am really trying to find a way to meet all of your requests the best I can.

The original look and all of the photos can be found here.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Soft Ochre paint pot as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Manila Paper eyeshadow on the inner third of the eyelid. Next, apply Straw Harvest eyeshadow on the middle third of the eyelid and lightly blend with the inner corner. Darken the outer third of the lid with Hot Hot Hot eyeshadow with the 239, gently brushing it into the lower crease. Lightly blend Hot Hot Hot eyeshadow, with the 239, on the outer corner and lid. Lightly tap and brush Straw Harvest eyeshadow directly above the crease to soften. To finish the eyeshadow look, sweep Ricepaper eyeshadow as a highlighter on the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying El Dorado eyeliner on the lower lash line and Zero eyeliner on the lower waterline. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Ripe Peach blush ombre to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Bronzilla lipstick first, and then layer Kumquat lipglass for a complementing lip.

Love this tutorial, it’s quick and to the point. I don’t like watching a 13 minute video of someone applying e/s to one eye, it’s drags on and it’s so time consuming. This one is great, I hope you do more of these “quick & dirty” videos!

yeapeeeeeee a video tutorial
i was feeling as if u were in front of me
wowwowowwwow such a nice closeup tutorial
u r always inovative n different
thankss a lot christine from allll of us

I really enjoyed this tutorial! The “quick & dirty” aspect of it made me feel like it was more approachable and real; something that I could easily do myself. Thanks, Christine!

Hm, interesting! I’ll try to give you some good feedback. I personally love watching people (read: you!) putting on makeup, so no problem there!

One thing I was thinking of: it’s pretty similar to your other video tutorials – minus background, lighting, etc. If it were me, I would keep doing the “other” videos for things like application techniques, placement,… (purely a look and how it is put together). I would use these sort of videos to show the creative process behind the look. So instead of “I’m going to apply Hot Hot Hot e/s” you could say “I’m going to apply Hot Hot Hot e/s because it ties in nicely with the peachy shades. You could also use *fill in name of e/s*. I’m going to add some gold later for extra warmth” (focusing more on choosing complementing colors, alternatives,… you know, the Christine-puts-on-her-makeup-process).

It’s just an idea! You know I always appreciate the things you do for us 🙂 Thanks!

Nice work! I love your tutorials!

I used to think the same thing about finishing school…that I would have so much extra time once I was done, but for some reason, something else has taken up my time! 🙁 I couldn’t tell you what it is though. LoL

Thanks a lot, Rowan!

LOL! I am wicked good at time management most of the time. I know where the time would go – Temptalia, haha!

There are days where I sit at the computer and next thing I know it’s 5pm, and I don’t even know what I did all day!

I think they definitely have some value in them. And I know the “if school didn’t exist” world… I’m in law school, too, and it’s such a time blackhole. At any rate, I’m definitely going to go get the Urban Decay El Dorado liner… it’s super pretty.

I agree – the closeup video was awesome. Short, learned some tricks, ty for the audio while applying. Really really looking forward to other videos – ty so so much for your site Christine 😀

that was great christine!
i prefer this type of tutorial with voice over instead of the person applying the makeup also explaining while working…(although i don’t dislike those either!) it’s just sooo much quicker! it’s nice to see how you got to the finished look that we usually see in the still photos, and as someone above mentioned, the close-up of the eye is useful.
one suggestion i do have is to describe the shade you are using, since some people won’t necessarily have access to that particular product, so that they won’t be relying entirely on the colour/texture accuracy of your camera and/or their monitor.

Thanks, Aradhana! It’s actually me talking while doing it (no voice over), but I’m so glad you liked this quicker vresion 🙂 I will definitely try to describe things a bit more while doing it!

I definitely liked seeing this “quick and dirty” video . . . It shows not just where you apply, but HOW you apply your eye makeup, which is informative!

Thank you 🙂

I love it! I’ve been thinking of getting the 239 brush and was just wondering how you used it. Great to see the vid. By the way, how different is 143 from 219?

I really loved the format of this video. I don’t need twenty minutes of explanation, seeing you do it really the quickest, most efficient way of communicating the technique to us. I hope you continue to do more of them!

OMG I feel so dizzy after watching this tutorial. The image keeps moving all the time in frames like loading something. I’ve tried to watch it from my laptop also, but the same result 🙁
